christmas cards from the ericksons...

so every year for like EVER, our family sends a
very unique christmas card out.  it had turned into quite a tradition and come october or november of every year, people begin asking what
we are doing for that year.  the pressure is on.
this year (and i SWEAR i will post it as soon as we take it)
we are going with a JERSEY SHORE christmas.
ha!  my husband is not thrilled, especially after the gun
one we did last year.  too bad, so sad.
my all time favorite has been "dreaming of a white trash christmas".

and let me just say what you are bound to be thinking:
"my, how her scrap style has changed and GROWN
over the years....."
i know.

what is your favorite theme we have done? 
got any ideas for future years?
 just want to mention how AWESOME UNITY STAMPS are?
leave a comment and i will pick a chick to win this stamp:

winner will be posted tomorrow some time.

after my blog, pop over to see wendy's:

OH MY GOODNESS JEN! Seriously! I am going to show these to my DH and see what he thinks (he hates Christmas pictures to begin with)! My favorite is the Deck the Halls theme! So cool!

OMG, girl!!! I think this is so awesome and creative and I love it. I can tell you & your family have fun together. I think it's great everyone gets so involved. I think the jersey show idea is going to be funny. My fav is last years with the guns. AWESOME. I'm so honored to be a part of the hop with you today. :)

freakin' awesome Christmas cards! Not sure my husband would go for this, but it is so fun looking! My favorite is the vote for Pedro photo. Love that movie!

OMGosh Jen! These are just too funny!!
But I just love your Daughter in your first layout! Besides what the True meaning of Christmas is, that excitment and joy of your Daughter is what it is all about!
